*Doodle This*

So.... yesterday the forecast for Calgary was a Heavy Snowfall Warning... 5-15cms of heavy wet snow overnight.... we woke up this morning to absolutely no snow. Ten minutes after the kids left, these huge flakes started to fall... and we already have accumulation on the ground less than an hour later! Yuck.

When the Spring Mini came out, the only set that screamed at me to buy it was Doodle This. I got the set and you know what? I love the images but never know what to do with them! It sucks that it just sits there when I know that beautiful things could happen with it!

So I decided yesterday morning to play with the rounded flower in the set... and this is the card I came up with. It was tough for me. I picked the set first, then the multicoloured ribbon and went from there. Took me about an hour to put this one together. I wish cards came together more quickly for me sometimes.... weren't such a struggle when I use images I love.

items used:
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Sage Shadow, Bashful Blue, Whisper White and Close to Cocoa
Ink: Stampin' Up! Basic Black Classic and Whisper White Craft
Images: Stampin' Up!
Ribbons: Stampin' Up!
Tools: hole punch, Marvy Square Giga Scallop Punch, Stampin' Up! Markers
Embellishments: Stickles, brad

Nice card :) I like it - the style & the colours! We are about a day behind you "weather-wise" in Regina! First thing this morning my 5 year old looked out the window & said, "it was supposed to rain but it's snowing!" First I heard about that so I was like, "WHAT!!??!!" Boo-hoo! BIG, WET flakes!

Great card. I also like the doodle set but not sure how I'd use it .. .going to see if it makes it into the new catty first... which I suspect it will.

I love your new card! I thought that the doodle this and that sets would be perfect for an altered journal. But you and SCS proved me wrong, I think it makes awesome cards!!

I feel the exact same way about this stamp set...so pretty, but what do you do with it? Your card is great! Now that you've made one with the set, the ideas may just overcome you now. Can't wait for more.
